Then the multiplication factor for the favourite team is smaller, not so atractive to the public. At that time favorite starts with a disability. Logic is theoretically simple: Arsenal — Chelsea, Arsenal suppose is 1. British favorable bet has a relatively low value, and in order to find greater value homes set a handicap.
For a share of 1. Chelsea win only x2. That makes it extremely difficult to beat. Portugal finished second in its group behind Spain, thanks mostly to four goals scored by Cristiano Ronaldo, who will need more supporting fire to break through the tough Uruguayans. Portugal has lacked the killer instinct in front of the goal and has not created much offense aside from CR7. It has huge potential, though, especially up front with the likes of Goncalo Guedes and Andre Silva, but so far it has been Ronaldo's show.
This is likely to be a close, low-scoring affair likely to be decided by one goal to either side. Iran , 2 draws vs. Egypt , 1 loss vs. Spain was involved in high-scoring games during group play with Diego Costa leading the attack up front. Keeper David de Gea barely got a touch, though, and the defense looked surprisingly suspect at times. Isco has taken on some of the burden, but he has yet to be tested against better defenses. The knockout games are decided with penalties if no winner can be found in 90 minutes of regulation and 30 minutes of extra time, so Spain might have a chance here even without scoring.
The hosts started the tournament with a blast, beating Saudis in the opener, but they weren't that dominant. That was proved by a humbling defeat to Uruguay in the final group-stage game. There were a lot of doubts about the Russians' quality as they looked awful in their preparation games. Home-field advantage seems to have worked well, though, and a couple of emerging stars have been born.
Roman Zobnin and Aleksandr Golovin have taken over the midfield while Denis Cheryshev has found the net at last. Peru , 2 draws vs. Croatia has been the bright spot of the tournament and has looked excellent in all three of its games. Beating Argentina by three goals is an achievement that shouldn't be overlooked.
Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic and Marcelo Brozovic dominated the pitch from the center and gave Argentina no chance to build anything from the midfield. With relentless wingers Ivan Perisic and Ante Rebic in support, Croatia is able to control the tempo and keep the pressure away from its goal.
The same can be expected going forward. Denmark finished second in its group despite winning only once and scoring just twice. It conceded just a penalty against Australia. Kasper Schmeichel has been good in goal and is commanding the defense admirably. The Danes are organized, hard-working and patient, which makes scoring against them difficult. Christian Eriksen is the not-so-secret weapon in set pieces; the midfield mastermind can change the game by himself.
On the negative side, Denmark has not gotten much from pacey offensive players Pione Sisto and Yussuf Poulsen. Croatia is likely to control this game while Denmark sits back and looks for openings to counterattack — or Eriksen free kicks. Costa Rica, vs.
